Back home after two weeks of travelling around parts of the East Coast of the USA, which went a bit like this… We flew in to Stewart International Airport (courtesy of Norwegian Airlines who we recommend) we picked up our hire car and headed up to Framingham, just outside Boston. The following day we spent…Continue reading That was America
The flights are booked, I’ve already got my packing list started, and we’re sorting out what things we might do when we get there. We fly in to New York, and then drive up to Boston for a day or so. Then we have a couple of days to pootle around Cape Cod, Providence, Hartford…Continue reading Holidays are coming
It’s over. Another year and you’ve survived Christmas Day. Well done! For some Christmas can be an ordeal, a day to be gotten through. For others it’s a day to savour and enjoy. Whatever type of Christmas Day you had, it’s over now. Boxing Day is a day for leftovers if you have them (trifle…Continue reading The day of boxing
I need some time off work. The last week I had off was in June and whilst life as a contractor means no worky = no money, I know I need some downtime. So I’ve booked the middle week of October off and I’m planning to try and get away somewhere. Where? Well that’s the…Continue reading Rotterdam or anywhere
We did done a holiday! We had a few simple criteria for our holiday. It needed to be under £500 each, it needed to be somewhere hot and sunny, and ideally it needed to be all inclusive. After various online searches, we had it narrowed down to a week in Cyprus, or a week in…Continue reading Back from Tunisia
For various historical and religious reasons, none of which I pay much heed to, I will be on holiday from this Friday through to Tuesday the 3rd of May. Given that it’s only costing me three days from my holiday allowance, then it’s almost like a free holiday. Part of that time will involve a…Continue reading Roll on the holidays
Mumsy knows me well, she knows I am still a big kid and so she bought me a Lego Advent calendar. It’s AWESOME! (if somewhat random…). Each window has a little lego kit to build, all of which will come together and, well, I’m not really sure they WILL all come together, like I said,…Continue reading Lego Advent
Well not you obviously, and no, before anyone asks I didn’t JUST take photos of the scenery, there are photos of family too I just don’t upload them often. Here then, the best of the 100 or so photos I took.
I’m currently operating on about 4.5hrs sleep having landed earlier this morning and suffering the return of the 6.30 alarm. Spain was warm, sunny for the most part, a little misty some mornings, blowing a gale for two of the days and we saw a beautiful lightning storm rage over the Mediterranean. I read books…Continue reading Home again, home again
There is a sense of mild, but controlled, panic in the air. I’ve only just realised that, a week today, we’ll be flying to Spain for a week in the sun. Don’t quite know how this has taken me by surprise but there you have it. All of a sudden I’m in the “pre-holiday zone”…Continue reading Panic!
